Soil is the loose upper layer of the earth. It is important that the soil is permeable enough to allow rainwater to seep through without creating ponds, but not so permeable that it won't retain the moisture needed to grow grass and shrubs.

The bearing soil is the layer of soil upon which the footings are poured. It must be strong enough to safely support the house throughout its life. Soil should also be uniform so that it does not exhibit differential settlement, which could cause the foundations and walls to crack.

Check whether the lot has a soil investigation report and if not it is advisable to carry out one. The Soil Investigation surveys provide information on the location and extent of different types of soil, soil properties such as friction capability or lack of it, and the depth of rocks.
